Lannette joined up with Team Banoodles for a second year in a row to compete in the Mighty Asian Moviemaking Marathon (MAMM). They had 10 days to create a 10 minute film using randomly drawn creative elements... the result is their 10 minute movie musical, "EVES", which will be shown on the big screen at Tinseltown along with the other competitors. The winners will be announced after the screening!

Team Banoodles won 2nd place at MAMM '06 with their movie, "Rise of the Kitara" (starring Ed Fong and Lannette New), which went on to play at the Vancouver Asian Film Festival that same year. The contest is trickier this year as teams had the additional creative element of genres this year.

Showtime is 7:00pm, with winners announced at the end. Then the party will begin! An additional screening-only session will also be held at 9:30pm for those who couldn't get into the first round.
